Developing risk management capability:
Maximising opportunities from global Pharmacovigilance experience
This two day-course leverages the Pharmacovigilance expertise of ISoP and has been designed to help interdisciplinary groups to learn and work together in contributing to patient safety when medicines are used.
At the end of the course, the participants are expected to understand current local and international legislative frameworks, and how they are expected to develop over the coming years. Participants will gain an understanding of considerations when developing strategies to increase volumes of ADRs, and how they might be handled through different signal management systems.
The second part of the course will focus on risk management and minimization approaches. Participants will gain hand on experience of development of Risk Management Plans (RMPs) and the conduct of Benefit-Risk assessments.
Day one will take the form of lectures with opportunity for discussion through questions and answers and panel discussion, while day two will focus on hands-on interactive tasks.
This course is aimed to engage all interested pharmacovigilance professionals in a regulatory, industry, hospital, university or community setting.
The faculty for this course consist of International experts in pharmacovigilance, representing government, academia, and industry.
